They should be aware who is out there to provide them with the right solution. But they won’t get involved with solution providers they don’t know.
When companies and their alphas are exploring the wild, they start looking for practical help. Decision-makers want to read case studies of how other companies have overcome specific challenges, plus they want quick self-assessments and practical checklists to make sure that they are not missing any crucial steps. Visualization helps to give them a quick yet complete overview of all the crucial elements, especially in turbulent times.

MARKETING EFFECTIVENESS IN SUPPLY CHAIN
The job description of most marketeers has drastically changed in the last few years. From set event scripts pre-pandemic, towards the unknown territory of virtual and hybrid events in the midst of the pandemic. Supply Chain Media has organized several of these hybrid events and created Webinar Wednesday. During this webinar Nicole Messink, marketeer of Supply Chain Media, will share her experiences of this transition period. She will also present the data of the webinars, regarding promotions, registrants, attendees and the recordings.
Hans Molenaar, Director of Beeckestijn Business School will connect those with the theory and his experiences.
